    CA - 3 year old Audrey left in parking lot in Los Angeles

    LAPD needs help in locating the parents of a 3 year old girl named Audrey who was left in a valet parking area at The Grove in LA. A woman pulled up, removed Audrey in her car seat from the vehicle and then drove off, Saturday evening. She never returned.

    Not certain if it was the 'Valley' or a 'valet' parking area Audrey was left at. It's being reported both ways. Maybe a local can clarify? I think it makes a difference, as one is much more likely to have attendants than the other....

    Valet is probably accurate. The Grove is a bunch of stores and a movie theater.

    It's very nice so I would imagine there are tons of cameras. I guess no one that saw her get dropped off thought to look at the license plate?

    I attached a photo of the directory that shows the valets. It looks like there are two.

    The Grove is a stupid place to drop her off because there are a lot of security cams. But it is a good place also, because it is a very 'safe' place, with lost of security and lots of families to look out for a child. I am thankful the woman did not juts leave her in a remote bus stop in a seedy area.

    It's right around the corner from the big American Girl store where she was left -
    and it's Valet!

    (We were just there a few weeks ago!)

    She looks well cared for and happy.

    Giving a hearty AMEN to this quote in the article:
    “I’m hoping that it’s maybe a miscommunication between the parents and/or the guardians,” said LAPD Lt. Lonnie Tiano. “I’m much more at ease having the child and looking for the parents, than having the parents and looking for a 3-year-old.”
    “I wanted to tell the book thief many things, about beauty and brutality. But what could I tell her about those things that she didn't already know? I wanted to explain that I am constantly overestimating and underestimating the human race-that rarely do I ever simply estimate it. I wanted to ask her how the same thing could be so ugly and so glorious, and its words and stories so damning and brilliant.”

    I'm wondering if license plates were covered and the mother was covered so cameras won't be of any help. How do they know her name...I guess she told them??? Poor sweet baby! But, yes, at least they dropped her somewhere somewhat safe and didn't hurt her...so there's that.

    Yes, so sad that it's come to that where I am actually 'grateful' that someone left a child on the curb, unharmed.

    So glad there is a thread here for Audrey. I saw this on the news and my heart just skipped. THANKFULLY The Grove is a very, very active, high end shopping area. Lots of cameras, lots of security. There are much worse places in la to abandon a child.

    She looks well care for so I have faith someone will recognize her. Lots of people are here on vacation for the holidays and the grove is a popular tourist area so maybe it would be best to get this out nationally?

    Also that area is home to LAs largest Jewish population. Flyers should be sent to the temples (church?).

    Poor little girl! I'm hoping that Mom just got overwhelmed, needing some time out. But, it's been a day or so, so maybe she really meant to abandon her? Do we know for a fact that it was Mom who left her? Sorry, I'm behind.

    No updates I can find yet. Horrible to think of this little girl being alone just before Christmas. If it was a miscommunication, I'd have thought someone would have reported her missing by now?

    Anyone with information regarding Audrey was urged to call the Wilshire area watch commander at (213) 473-0476.

    I think the valets just saw a women in the car, but no description so I guess they didn't get a good look. And it seems Audrey is likely to just know her mom or dad by those names, which seems quite possible.
